Starting in 2011 the Doctoral College GIScience builds on the strong foundations of the doctoral programme in Geoinformatics and GIScience at the University of Salzburg.
It fosters the improved integration of existing research clusters across disciplinary boundaries, especially between the geo-disciplines and other natural sciences but also with formalized ties into computing and the social sciences.
Based on its research excellence and the unique setting in the GIScience triangle between university research – non-university research – industry research (see www.giscience-research.org) more researchers need to be trained at doctoral level than ever before, if the ambitious objectives concerning enhanced research capacity, innovation and qualitative growth are to be met.
